By Calvin Wilson
Written by a neighbor here in the rural mountains of North Carolina, this remarkable account of overcoming terrible hardship is a special offering by Compassion Books.
Calvin Wilson was born into poverty in the Southern Appalachian mountains. He was tossed from home to home during his early adolescence and struggled with mistreatment, anger, and resentment at the unfair circumstances life had imposed upon him. Here he tells his story and how he found God and received peace of mind, happiness, and forgiveness.
A Calvin self-published his story with the hope that it will inspire and help others who are also struggling to overcome a difficult childhood. He is a member of a Missionary Baptist Church, a successful nursery grower, and enjoys Southern gospel music, bear hunting, and fishing.
